All Midleton College students participate in all aspects of school life as far as possible: basic educational courses and research, joint projects, sports and creativity, entertainment and leisure activities, social and charitable work.

The purpose of the High School Program is to enable children of different nationalities and backgrounds to receive a quality education, to teach them to take a different viewpoint and someone else's opinion, to cultivate tolerance and respect for others. Students become more friendly and tolerant, better understand intercultural processes throughout the world and are ready for life in the modern international community. The program is selective: to enroll in the course the child must demonstrate a sufficiently high level of knowledge, independence and perseverance in order to meet the high standards of the school. Lessons are usually held in the morning, from 8:55 to 16:05 (total 9 lessons daily), additional lessons last until 17:30 (breaks are provided). Children are engaged on weekdays (from Monday to Friday), 1 lesson lasts 35-40 minutes.
